About me

Occupation At Home Mami
Location Milwaukee, Wisconsin, United States
Introduction Rebecca Gagnon is a stay-at-home mother, food writer and recipe tester. Her general kitchen gonzo is fueled by her never-ending desire for meaningful and rewarding work, the desire to eat and drink well, and in the hope that she will never have to be employed again for anyone other than herself. She is currently the writer of the food blogs CakeWalk and Becky-Home-Ecky, and her amateur photography appears both on flickr and on her (now defunct) photography project LIFEyear. She resides with her husband and two sons in a small mid-century home on the southern cusp of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Please email her for more information on recipe testing your project, or honest reviews of your quality product!
